So much public discourse today is highly selective and filtered through the lens of political correctness and personal agenda. Rules and laws are no longer guides to action, but mere suggestions. Truth is no longer fixed and firm, something to rely on, but relative and ever changing.
How do we survive in such a world? How does a sailor navigate with a rubber sextant and not crash on rocks? How does a carpenter build a house on quicksand and withstand the storm? How is justice dispensed when the definition of right and wrong changes daily? How can a society survive when the fundamental tools required for its very functioning are corroded and corrupted?
The purpose of this blog is to give glory to God and Jesus Christ in this confused world by shining the light of His Truth wherever there is darkness. Darkness may be created by a lack of understanding, misunderstanding, deliberate falsehoods, commonly accepted misconceptions, and simple lack of information. It is our objective to alleviate those situations.
For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9)
Scope and Content
This blog will address “deep” and “hot” topics. The “deep” topics will examine the great questions of life, such as “Why am I here? Who am I? What happens when I die?” and so on. The “hot” topics will be whatever seems to be particularly active in the news. It may be political, scientific, related to faith and religion, or some other issue of interest. Wherever possible, we will apply the scientific method; we will always strive to accurately present the facts.
Information is power. God gave each one of us a brain to process information and make informed decisions. Let this blog be helpful in providing accurate, truthful information for that purpose. Our objective is not to convince or force a particular conclusion but to present the facts truthfully and let the reader decide for himself. That was always God’s way, as opposed to man’s “politically correct” way. Let us not be intimidated by the loudness of the voices on either side, but rather focus on the facts, search the evidence, and find Truth. Let us not be fooled, but let us be like the Bereans:
Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true. (Act 17:11)
